Certified Dementia Practitioner
We are pleased to announce that Chris Zayid, owner of Affinity Home Care Agency recently became a certified dementia practitioner. This is a specific educational training that is important in order to better serve our aging population. Dementia is not a specific disease, but rather an overall term that is used to describe a group of symptoms. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia making up 60-80% of all dementia cases. Chris is now certified as a practitioner of 6 types of dementia.
These types of dementia are:
Dementia with Lewitt Body
Dementia in Parkinson’s disease
Over the next few weeks, our social media platforms and our blog will be explaining what each of these types of dementia are. 1 in 3 seniors will die with dementia, so this is a very important issue to address. Affinity Home Care Agency is committed to helping seniors age in place as independently as possible, for as long as they can.
